Location: Northern Suburbs Melbourne, Victoria

About the company

This is a fantastic place to work because although it isn't a massive company, they are a forward thinking and progressive leadership who are prepared to put money into what they see as the future - advanced manufacturing, industry 4.0, and of course their people capability. In line with that, they have a really easy going and down to earth approach to culture where people are engaged, have meaningful work, and have a great team of people around them - there is no shortage of work to do, and for sure sometimes things are stressful, but there is an environment of support and shared purpose.

About the role

This is more or less an entry level role they is used as a launching pad for graduates within their business. The idea is that you spend 12-24 months in a laboratory based role as you learn the business and grow your skills and interests, at that point you can take on your next challenge. The Innovation Laboratory Tech role is lab based, it executes batteries of tests and other processes in support of new product development.

About you

We're looking for enthusiastic and qualified graduates who have an interest in the manufacturing space, you'll either have a science or chemical engineering degree and you'll see this is a foot in the door within a medium sized business with a great culture. In the short term, you'll be successful in the lab role because of your attention to detail, your flexibility and adaptability to try new things, your organisational skills and positive attitude. If you happen to have some experience in a professional lab based role, that would surely be an advantage.

Why should I apply?

This role will give you a structured induction to a career in modern manufacturing, a role you can be impactful in immediately, and a clear development plan into bigger and better things. This business is one that although not a huge multi-national, has a strong culture and people focussed agenda - people rarely leave this company and there's a good reason for that, because they feel valued and they have meaningful work. This is also an extremely innovative company who have close parterships with the CSIRO and other external bodies to foster a spirit of innovation.
